Hedmark county council organizes courses for business entrepreneurs in the region. Through tenders, we have engaged an agency to do these courses many places in the county. This course is well established and well reputed.
The courses for business entrepreneurs go over six course evenings.
The first course evening, emphasis will be placed on resource mapping, clarification of ideas and motivation. Furthermore, the next four course evenings will contain the topics product/service/market (2 course evenings) and economy and self-management (2 course evenings). On the last evening of the course, each participant can present their business model in front of a panel of participants from business development agencies and bank.
The first course evening is free. As of the second course evening, the course has to be paid for, which includes that each participating company is offered five tutoring hours with the course holders.
Prior to the courses, the municipalities will hold their own entrepreneurial events where the course trainer will participate. The purpose of the entrepreneurial events is to mobilize businesses and get ideas for increasing establishment in the region. It is the business development agencies in the municipalities that is responsible for the implementation in the various places.
We also arrange additional courses for immigrants with immigrant backgrounds - an offer that is a good complement to ordinary establishment courses.
